The Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock will perform their latest work Lockout at Hangar on November 21st, assisted by Dónal Lunny and an electric guitar orchestra
Named after a poem about a haunted canal lock, The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock combine elements of the Irish folk tradition with modern experimental rock sounds. They have released two albums to date, 2008’s eponymous debut and 2012’s The Brutal Here and Now with Transduction Records.
“Lockout” is a new large-scale work by The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock about the 1913 Lockout. For this project the band are joined by an electric guitar orchestra, bringing this unique sound into the world of contemporary Irish traditional music. “Lockout” is a grand departure for the band, bringing an epic volume and scale to their unique blend of contemporary and traditional sounds, and adding a sharper, more political voice which addresses the recent anniversary of the Lockout, and its relevance today.
“Lockout” will be performed in full for the first time with a special show at Hangar, with 18 musicians in what promises to be a unique and powerful performance. They are honoured to be joined by legendary traditional musician Dónal Lunny, a driving force behind Planxty and The Bothy Band.
